Moraga Art Gallery Announces a new art exhibit
Debby Koonce, "Atop Old Borges Ranch," Acrylic on Canvas

The community is invited to meet the artists of the Moraga Art Gallery's new art exhibit, "Spaces, Inside and Out" - which will run through Dec. 24 - during a virtual open house at 5 p.m. Nov. 7. This will be a great opportunity to meet the featured artists, Debby Koonce and Angelica Samame, and ask them questions about their art.
Koonce is a plein air painter who draws inspiration from natural settings reflecting the changing light of the day and season. Whether painting locally or while on travel, she is inspired by vistas, architecture, quaint alleyways and park lands.
Samame enjoys painting women in colorful and multifaceted ways. She has found that being quarantined has a silver lining, since it has offered her the time and opportunity to experiment with new painting styles.
Starting in November, don't miss the gallery's Holiday Boutique, which will feature handmade gift items created by local artists including glass items, ceramics, beautiful wooden bowls, small paintings, decorative pillows, holiday cards and jewelry.
Moraga Art Gallery is a cooperative featuring the work of eighteen established local artists and artisans and five guest artists whose work includes painting, sculpture, jewelry, print media, ceramics, photography and woodworking.
To safeguard gallery staff and visitors, everyone visiting the gallery is required to wear a face mask and to maintain social distancing by keeping at least six feet apart. The gallery has hand sanitizer for guests to use when entering the gallery and gloves will also be available at the front desk for handling prints and ceramics. We are limiting the number of customers to four people at a time.
You will find the link to join the Open House reception on the Moraga Art Gallery website: https://moragaartgallery.com. The Moraga Art Gallery located at 432 Center Street, Rheem Shopping Center is open Friday through Sunday, noon to 3 p.m. Starting in November the gallery will be open Thursday through Sunday, noon to 3 p.m. For more information, visit the website, call (925) 376-5407 or email moragaartgallery@gmail.com.
